» Typical tournament
$ 10 per player per shot
Players provide their own golf ball to launch
Players can pre-purchase a ticket at registration or donate cash at the hole.
Some tournaments will ask for $20 per shot or some ask for $100 per foursome. I leave this up to the tournament coordinator to decide on the donation.
» I request that the tournament director and the golf course clubhouse manager both acknowledge that they have approved the use of the AR-15 golf ball launcher and are aware of the noise associated with it.
I will provide a Booking Agreement to be signed by the tournament coordinator.

» The longer the lead time the better. April/May and September /October are very busy months and monday and fridays tend to booked early.
I prefer to have a 2 week notice for most tournaments. For any tournament requesting custom logo golf balls, a two week minimum lead from the time I receive the approved logo files.
» Preferably a par 4 or par 5 hole with a straight line of sight out to around 400-yards and away from any homes if possible. I would bring a table, tent, chair, hole sign, and some small items to set up. I would also need access to a golf cart before and after the tournament to transport the items but otherwise I am pretty self sufficient during the tournament.
» Yes, I carry a $1 million dollar policy and can add the charity and/or the golf course on at no charge for the date of the event.
